Brain function relies on the efficient processing of sensory information which requires formation and interaction of sensory maps in different areas. Vision is the prevailing sense in several species including humans. How is the visual system network wired? How does it function in a normal and pathological context? These are the questions we are addressing, using state-of-the-art experimental, computational and behavioral approaches.
